How has this worked out?   Is there a homebrew addon howto anywhere? Or will the homepage have
sufficient info to hack this feature in?
Just curious because I had tried smoothie for about a month because of the UPnP.  Worked great for
the first 2 weeks until I started getting random repeated and frequest reconnects.  Plugged m0n0
back in and am rock solid.  BUT I NEED MESSENGER VOICE!  eeeh.  hehe.  I feel better :)
